CONIAC meeting minutes – 20 November 2013

The Construction Industry Advisory Committee (CONIAC) advises the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) on the protection of people at work (and others) from hazards to health and safety within the building, civil engineering and engineering construction industry.

Its membership is tripartite, providing representation from key industry stakeholders (including SMEs). Its strategic work helps the industry deliver the challenging RHS targets it set at the 2001 Construction Summit, and helps to secure close links between the industry and HSE.

CONIAC was reconstituted at the beginning of 2013 with a refreshed membership. The new approach reflects the desire of HSE to work in partnership with intermediary groups in the construction industry, to take forward the new HSE Strategy. The aim is to take forward new ways of working with the constituencies represented on CONIAC in order to deliver the Strategy and the Revitalising Health and Safety targets within those constituencies.

CONIAC has four sub groups helping to take forward its work:

  • Safety Working Group
  • Working Well Together Steering Group
  • Major Incidents
  • Health Risks Working Group

The Chair of CONIAC is Heather Bryant, Chief Inspector of Construction.

  • Members of CONIAC, and the organisations they represent
